Polynesians of Kapingamarangi, reel 2.
Filmed in Kapingamarangi, an atoll in the state of Pohnpei of the Federated States of Micronesia.
The film depicts many of the traditional daily activities of Kapingamarangi, without reflecting 20th century influences, other than footage of women looking through a camera lens.
